Ayurvedic Exploration: Is This My Ego? Developing a Strong Identity

Often the Ego is perceived as something to be squashed and eliminated. However, through Yoga and Ayurveda we learn that a healthy, well loved, and supported Ego leads us to understanding who we are and what we contribute to the world. In this workshop we will explore the make up of our consciousness as presented by the breath-taking system of Samkhya. We will learn the various parts of the yogic mind, how they function independently and together and how to learn to manage and support them.
If the goals of Yoga are quieting the turnings of the mind, it seems important to know then, what it is the mind is, so that we can then quiet their turnings!

We will begin class with a Lecture from 1-3pm and after a short break, apply our learnings to the asana practice fro 3:30-5pm, supported by a long, nourishing savasana. Understanding what the Ego is and how to assist its service will inevitably allow us to make different, more connected choices in our lives. The asana practice will permit us the ability to immediately apply these lessons gleaned from the lecture.

This workshop is open to all. The asana practice will be suited to all ages, bodies, and strengths. Existing yoga instructors earn Yoga Alliance Continuing Education credits.
